    Thanks Jimi. I'm loving the guitar. Hardly playing anything else. I'm having a hard time thinking of a reason to own a Les Paul though.

    This just turned up on my doorstep. A Vox AC15CH head. I bought the combo last year but had to return it because of a rattle in the cab. But it sure sounded good. Finally decided to buy the head.

    Here's a quickie I recorded this afternoon with the Epiphone 335. I'm using the Mesa closed back 1x12 with Vintage 30s, miked with an SM57 at the edge of the dust cap. I'll try some open back cabs next. I'm mostly using the top boost channel in this clip. Master volume was set up pretty high, maybe 3:00. The channel volume is the gain, I think. That's backed down to maybe 11:00. I used a clean boost and the Strymon Timeline for the lead part. The rhythm guitars are the same thing minus the clean boost, gain dialed back.

    Sounds great. Nice tones.

    Of these samples I liked the 335 with the velocette and 57/ribbon mic and the 335 with the vox/closed cab with the 57 the most.

    There was something kind of boxy sounding about the hughes and kettner sound.

    The Mrk V sound was ok, just not as good as the velocette and vox IMO. Sounded smaller, thinner.

    Thanks Dave. I tried the Vox out this afternoon playing through the open back cab of my Fender DRRI. It sounded beautiful. Tones to come.

    Same setup as above, but this time I ran the AC15 through the open back cab of my Fender Deluxe 65 reissue. It has one of the old brown Eminence speakers that they used in the early years of the series.

    To my ears, this beats the closed back by a mile. What do you think?

    Peg solo, Epiphone ES335 and Vox AC15 head

    Having a hard time finding reasons to play anything other than the 335. It makes you want to pick it up. Here it is through the AC15 head into the Mesa 1x12 closed cab, miked with an SM57. There's a Strymon Timeline delay into the front end.

    Jay Graydon played the solo on the Steely Dan song. His swagger as he tosses off that off-beat ascending riff, followed by a descending pedal steel type riff--a total badass.

    that 335 into the hughs kettner up the thread with the ART mic is really a cool sound, full with a lot of body, my favorite of the samples.
    how much of that is the ribbon mic and room?
    the 57 samples have the mids less bass end. sounds good too...

    if it's not happening in the room, it ain't gonna happen on tape.-HG

    Thanks, I like that clip too. The ribbon mic is picking up a lot of the room. It was cranked. That Tubemeister has a ballsy midrange, which might help keep it from getting washed out in the room.

    Now that I've bought a Fender Select Strat. I can get the tone I've been trying to get from my Gibson ES 335.
    Lend me your ears

    Strat and SG through a couple of amps

    Here's a quick guitar solo. There are two parts, a rhythm guitar and a lead guitar, then together in the mix.

    The rhythm is an SG through the Mesa V:25 and a 1x12 closed back cab, miked with an SM57.

    The lead is a Strat through the Tubemeister 18 and the same cab and mic.

    Both parts are doubled. Delay is the Strymon Timeline.
